From the beginning
I am a former Principal, field Superintendent and Superintendent of Curriculum and Instructional Services with the York Region District School Board. Since leaving this great school board, I have been thoroughly enjoying time for short term contracts, research, consulting, teaching and writing. I work as a sessional instructor for Western’s Graduate Education program and I am involved on on-going coaching in the areas of literacy instruction, collaborative inquiry and inquiry based learning for students through my consulting name: Collaborative Learning Services.
My area of sustained research interest is understanding the complexities of collaboration and their impact on learning in the classroom and in the workplace. In my view, collaboration has to make a difference for student learning if it is to sustainable.
I am certainly a digital immigrant but see the potential in new and emerging technologies. I can say I even feel confident with a few forms of social media now :-). Most of all I believe we must engage in this new brave world of creative collaboration.
Where we are now
Working with educators to improve learning for all.
Through use of proven collaborative strategies, we will work together to build a learning environment that helps build your staff into a cohesive team, developing the skills and mindsets that will benefit all students.
